We've all got the blues

When I did my 100 book challenge last year, I would occasionally (and accidentally) get a large print book from the library. I'd crack it open, see all the large typeface and think, "Wow. That's kind of nice."…

Just five more minutes, Mom

As mentioned before, when it comes to mornings, I am awake and ready to go. This ability served me well in middle school and high school when I was responsible for getting myself awake, dressed and to school (via the bus or my own two feet) on time. I set my own alarm and I…

How are you sleeping?

It’s 2 a.m., you’ve finally dozed off, and have peacefully drifted into the land of a clean house and well behaved children (Let me clarify...this is in your dreams). All of a sudden, something arouses you to a conscious state. You lie there with your eyes still closed and assess the situation (we’re moms and intuitive dads...we can…

How's He Sleeping?

When Joshua was between three and five months old, I was walking out of Panera with my Frozen Mocha in one hand, and lugging Joshua in his carrier in the other. I was admiring the energy of a little boy that appeared…

At night I dream of sleep

There is a note in my baby book that scares me a little. My mother wrote it in the four-year-old section:

       NO NAPS!



The fact that it was in all caps with an exclamation point only underscores the frustration and hopelessness she must have felt around the situation. I mean, children are…

Waking up with bears

It is 6:10 am. Bear number one's alarm goes off. He ignores it and rolls over. About 10 minutes later, I attempt to wake bear number two. He asks me to go away and come back in five minutes.



I'm surrounded by bears.…

Zen and the art of sleeping alone

When I wake up in the morning, it is usually to the brief beeping of an alarm, a steady (and desperate purring) or a little face next to mine asking me for pancakes. In all of these instances, my husband is still asleep.

I've always been a light sleeper. To this day, my husband reminds me of the time I woke up to the…

Bedtimes for everyone

My bedtime is 10 pm.



This is self-imposed, of course. I am a (mostly) fully-functioning adult. And I also recognize that if I don't go to bed at that time, then I will be extra groggy at 5:15 when the cat/alarm/cat alarm wakes me the next morning.…
